I don't understand the bad reviews... this place is fantastic value for money, is friendly, comfortable and is in a decent location. People obviously haven't stayed elsewhere and compared it with anything else. I've stayed at the Winterhaus now for 2 years in a row (and planning this year too) during snow season and yes its not a luxury hotel BUT the price tag isn't either!
I usually head there for the better part of a week with a mate and we use the place to sleep and other than that either spend the time on the mountain or at one of the bars/restaurants around.
If you want something economical that does the job then I recommend this place. The staff are all friendly (especially the caretaker) and breakfast is pretty good. It beats staying in nearby Jindy as at least its within Thredbo village - although the walk back to the hotel can be tiring after a day out. BUT all you need to do is wait for one of the free shuttle buses - easy.
In terms of what you pay for, this place delivers. If you expect luxury then this is not the place for you.
The only unfortunate thing is that it is owned by a west coast eagle fan... that's why it loses one star..
